Republicans

April 30 ***Corrected***

Word from my sources tell me that the Michigan Senate had granted Gov. Witless’ extension to her “Emergency Powers” about two hours ago.

This has been sent over to the Michigan House where it is expected to be approved later this afternoon and then signed by the guv.

On the plus side: The extension only lasts until April 30th, when it will be “reevaluated”.

The down side: there was nothing extracted from the guv to put a muzzle on her wanton actions until that date.

Mandatory statewide lock-down? Nothing to address it.

Increased penalties for those found “ignoring” the guv’s commands? Nothing to address that one, either.

Anything else the guv’s staff can conceive to further erode our Constitutional Rights?

Ahahahahahahahahahaha!

Twenty-three days, my friends.

Stay tuned.

 

*** Going by what was sent to me earlier from my source in Lansing (the Senate’s session was unusually brief), what was passed this morning and then later in the House was SCR 24 (information now posted here).

It will not require the signature of the governor before going into effect (See MCL 30.404 Section 3 (4)).***

Drag Queen Story Hour…Starring the New Leader of the Michigan College Republicans?

Patriots,

As I am sure we are all aware, the election of President Donald Trump has not resulted in wholesale changes throughout the GOP. While the President may be doing his best work to drain the swamp in Washington D.C., there is a swamp embedded at every level throughout society.

This is particularly apparent within the College Republicans, an organization that is notorious for pushing the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan establishment wing of the party. The CRs are infamous for being a breeding ground for the next wave of Republican establishment politicians to serve globalist interests. The CRs have done a woeful job of reaching out to young adults, which is why they are rapidly being supplanted by the America First movement throughout the country.

The Michigan chapter of the CRs was recently disgraced after their public relations chairman was accused of lascivious homosexual behavior at the Conservative Political Action Conference this year.

Dorian Thompson was fired by the CRs after multiple students alleged that he intimidated and coerced them in a hotel room. According to the students, Thompson demanded to “inspect” their genitals otherwise he threatened to ruin their futures in the conservative movement.

I would be far more concerned with our governor’s actions at this time, than with a bug.

They say that in building and maintaining a brand, messaging is vitally important.

The Guv didn’t stray too far from that lesson tonight.

Well, this should be good. I think?

From the inbox…

I’ve been told that the guv will be holding a statewide town hall, on Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00pm

Even though there was one last week, this is apparently the first one that will be shown here in Southeastern Michigan on every local television station.

Given her SS-orders, they will be taking questions from the public at the link I included above. No chance to attend one of these in person, even though she had the media attending in-person her others forays in front of the TV cameras.

Say, can the governor be cited for violating her own “social distancing” orders?

Will she go over and above her “emergency powers” and announce the cancellation the rest of the public school year because of Detroit?

Will she ask for an extension of her “emergency powers”…due to expire April 13th?

Will she have a plan on how to address the monumental economic damage her orders have caused Michigan’s economy (without blaming Pres. Trump)?

Tune in and find out.

It’s not as if you can go out and do anything else…

Doing something right for a change.

There was a story which a friend of mine passed along to me several years ago regarding early American History, specifically relating to government spending, which I immediately enjoyed and still remember to this day.

It focused on a conversation between one Davy Crockett and a constituent by the name of Horatio Bunce, regarding an appropriations bill in the US House of Representatives. Mr. Bunce took issue with not only the speed the appropriation was made, but why it was even made in the first place. During their conversation, he also drove that point solidly home by reminding the then campaigning Rep. Crockett:

“The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.”

Let’s just say that Rep. Crockett had an interesting response to that situation to say the least (along with how it guided his future decisions).
So, what does a discussion nearly two centuries ago have to do with Michigan Politics today?

Porkculus – The Revenge

Some readers may recall this term bandied about several years ago, when Congress being Congress, went on a spending spree that can be accurately compared to giving an alcoholic an open bar tab and then being shocked when not only all of the top shelf inventory is cleaned out first, but the rest of the bar as well.

Take a wild guess what happened earlier this week?

At least you won’t get the sniffles.

And right about now, the law of unintended consequences is kicking in (if you actually believe this was all really “unintended”).

What might this little factoid be, you may ask yourself?

Vote!

One of the disturbing things that I’ve come across while taking care of a troubling computer issue this weekend (“troubled computer” in question now dealt with in a very cathartic manner), is the number of people who are not aware of the OTHER issues on the ballot on Tuesday.

In between what can literally be described as the “chicken little” mentality in the MSM regarding yet another bug going around (practice basic hygiene…problem solved), very little (if any) coverage has been given to the other issues down ballot whose supporters are hoping that you either a.) not notice, or b.) just don’t bother showing up to vote at all.

I’m going to do a quick recap on what’s at stake.
